Juventus coach Max Allegri defended his strikers after defeat to Genoa.

Dusan Vlahovic and Moise Kean both failed to get on the scoresheet in last night's loss.

Allegri said, “This was one of Vlahovic's best games on a technical level. I am very pleased with the way he played with his technique. I tried to explain it before, but I was attacked as if I was the one ruining Vlahovic. He hasn't played that many Serie A games and we need to find a balance here. Maybe he didn't realise it was a good performance, I think next season we will see a definite improvement in terms of how he balances out the tempo of his performance, learning that he hasn't failed if he doesn't score a goal, there's more to it.

“Kean is a player who usually scores with half a chance, tonight he had five or six and didn't score, so that's football for you. He has more experience, despite being very young, but he too needs to play it simple and not use up so much energy in these individual duels that aren't really helping."
